MADISON (WKOW) – Ford is recalling
some of its 2012 Edge vehicles due to potential fuel line problems.
There is a concern that the fuel
line could leak and potentially cause a fire.
The problem is caused by a crack in the fuel line. If there was a crack, the smell of gas would
probably be noticeable and the fuel leaks might also appear.
The recall affects about 5,500
vehicles. The Edge is a midsized SUV,
and the affected vehicles have 2-liter engines.
Ford blamed faulty manufacturing by
a parts supplier. Ford will notify
owners to take their vehicles to a dealer and it will do any necessary repairs
for free. Ford said it's aware of 12
cases of fuel leaks. No accidents,
injuries or fires have been reported.
